Watch Reba McEntire perform Dolly Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas”

As part of the 2018 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special.

Last night, ABC aired the annual CMA Country Christmas special, which featured Reba McEntire performing a stripped-down cover of Dolly Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas.”

The performance, recorded earlier in September at the Belmont University’s Curb Event Center in Nashville, is McEntire at her finest. The 63-year-old singer—who also played host at this year’s concert—served on-point vocals, belting over a melancholic piano arrangement played by Catherine Marx. McEntire even added a dash of her country twang to make the song her own.

The show’s line-up also included performances from other country favorites such as Dan + Shay, Brad Paisley and Martina McBride.
